We are excited to announce that revised planning permission has been submitted to Angus Council on behalf of developer Cullross Limited and Hillcrest Housing Association for 44 affordable homes in Forfar.

The proposal, to be built on land located behind Beech Hill Court Sheltered Housing, have been amended following feedback from both the local community and planning. They will provide a mixture of one-, two-, three- and four-bed houses, as well as two- and three-bed colony units.

Located within a mile of the town centre, this development offers easy access to amenities, schools, and public transport, ensuring convenience for residents. With meticulous planning the project aims to harmonize with the surrounding roads and boundary conditions, sensitively maximizing the site’s potential while making a positive contribution to the urban fabric.

Cullross Limited Director Mark Beaton is quoted as saying “Following a review of community feedback, we withdrew our original application and have re-submitted a new application for planning with several changes, notably around ecology, trees, and flood protection. There is an acute need for new housing in Forfar and Angus Council has identified this site as suitable. We remain committed to working with the community to address any remaining concerns.”

jmarchitects Graham Barr states “jmarchitects are excited to see this project progress to the next stage of development taking on board public feedback, and we look forward to collaborating with Cullross Limited and Hillcrest Housing Association once again as we continue to strengthen our business links.”
